When the VESDA LaserPLUS (VLP) series of detectors was released 22 years ago, it marked a new era for Aspirating Smoke Detection (ASD) technology. Since then, VESDA has evolved from being a specialist, niche technology to a pillar of the fire detection industry.
VESDA VLP is now the most widely used aspirating smoke detection product and sets the benchmark for smoke detection sensitivity, reliability, longevity, stability and efficiency of operation – confirming that Xtralis are true pioneers in the smoke detection market.
Following the success of VESDA VLP, VESDA LaserCompact (VLC) detectors were designed to provide all the benefits of ASD in single area environments and where space is limited. VLC detectors use the well-proven technology of VLP detectors combined with a modified aspirator design to provide a simplified, compact aspirating detection solution.
Since the launch of VESDA-E, Xtralis’ new range of detectors, a new benchmark has been set. VESDA-E detectors provide superior detection performance; greater tolerance to nuisance alarms, lifetime stability in a huge variety of applications, added flexibility and a new range of connectivity options.
